"Iran has been cut off from paying for South Korean imports with the United States re-imposing sanctions, and South Korea is concerned that the Korea Trade Insurance Corporation (KTIC) may be on the hook for compensation payouts for the losses sustained by South Korean companies." (October 23, 2018)


"Minister of Economic Affairs and Finance has confirmed local media reports of an imminent South Korean $13 billion credit line to support Iranian projects–a measure, which if finalized, will mark the biggest instance of foreign finance for the country since the implementation of the nuclear accord in January 2016,...Almost all the key details of the credit line have been reportedly agreed upon, and the Korean government has given the green light, based on which $8 billion will be provided by Export–Import Bank of Korea (KEXIM) while the Korea Trade Insurance Corporation (K-SURE) will account for the rest."
